Ever since I learned a bit about lino cutting and printing in a great surface design class that I took from Rayna Gillman, I have wanted to know more. I often read Dijanne Cevaal's blog, and when I saw that she was
going to be teaching an online lino cutting class, I just had
to sign up. I am a bit behind because when I began the
first assignment, I realized that my assortment of cutters
was not complete! So, I had to order more and they
have just arrived. I am totally addicted to this! The first picture shows my
nine patch 'sampler' printed on newsprint.
Here I've printed it on one of my very first pieces of hand-dyed fabric.....you can plainly see why I wanted to print on this fabric! LOL
I used black textile paint on the first two pieces.
Here I've used some silver textile ink.
I'm so in love with this process....can't wait to do more carving and printing! I ordered several different types of lino from Dick Blick, as I wanted to see what was out there besides the Speedball, which I have used in the past.
